Jason Shurtz, Adventure Guru

Jason Shurtz RYT200Jason Shurtz, RYT-200 is Heidi’s husband, assistant instructor, and official adventure junkie for Yoga Retreats Bali.

Jason was with Heidi during her prolonged stay and yoga teacher training in Ubud, Bali in 2010, and has returned to Bali every year with Heidi since.  Along with his surfing-gypsie ways, he also has a deep passion for yoga which he found through trying to keeping his body in prime shape for his wild-sport hobbies.  He recently completed an RYT-200 training with Gerhard E. Gessner at Prana Yoga Center in La Jolla.  Since then he has practiced teaching and extensive adjustments.  He is a talented teacher in his own right and knows the body very well. Jason looks forward to offering people a more hands on experience in yoga classes for their benefit.

“I think most yogis appreciate a good adjustment, I know I do Haha! But unlike most group classes at home where you’ll be lucky if you get one or two adjustments through the whole class, we can give enough attention to our participants to almost adjust everyone in each pose.”

Jason loves yoga, but ultimately prefers to spend his days exploring the coasts of Bali (or anywhere with warm tropical surf). In doing so, he has logged countless hours and days in many different areas, but it’s the world-class waves on the Bukit Peninsula and of Uluwatu that continue to be his favorite on Bali.  He is our main guide during the retreat for any trips to beach areas like Padang Padang (where they filmed the final scenes in the cult classic movie Eat, Pray, Love with Julia Roberts), Uluwatu, Bingin, Dreamland and more . (Note: surfing at any break on Bali will be dependent on the skill level of the individual surfer and the size of the surf that day).

Surfing or not, Uluwatu is an especially magical place on Bali and will be a memorable trip even if you never touch a board. With Jason leading the way with his continuous smile and fun upbeat attitude, we will explore the coast of Bali through the eyes of a person who truly sees the best in everything around him.

Ladies- feel free to bring your buddies/husbands/boyfriends/significant others along on this retreat as they can hang out with this guy and have a blast!! :)
